Gym Rats and Marvy Uchida Watercolor Pencils by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here and today is our final day of our collaboration with Marvy Uchida! In today’s video I demonstrate a simple coloring technique on these cute Hamsters from the Gym Rat Combo set using Marvy Uchida Watercolor Pencils and their Le Plume II Blender. I had a lot of fun with this card and even made the center hamster resemble a certain celebrity, any guesses? Watch the video to find out!

First, I stamped several hamsters from Gym Rat Stamp Set the onto 110lb white cardstock in Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I then colored them in with a 24 set of Marvy Uchida watercolor pencils and then blended with the Marvy’s Le Plume II Blender. Once all my images were colored I die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I stamped a wood floor with the Layering Woodgrain Stamp Set in Coffee Loves Milk onto light brown cardstock. I then trimmed the stamped cardstock to 2.125” x 5.5”. Next I stamped, a rainbow burst onto an A2 panel of white yardstick using the Rain Check Stamp Set an array of Waffle Flower Inks (My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, Happy Go Lucky, and Daydreaming).

I then adhered the woodgrain paper onto the A2 panel and then ran the two together through my die cutting machine with the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die to add a stitched border. Next, I adhered all the images to the panel and then adhered the panel to an A2 card base. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Gym Rat Stamp Set onto the card front in Versafine Onyx Black.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thank you so much for joining us during or week long collaboration with Marvy Uchida! And don’t forget to check out their Instagram feed next week when they share their projects their team created with Waffle Flower products! Have a wonderful day!

Striped Moon & Stars Shaker Card by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new video! Today I share how to create this colorful striped shaker card with the Moon & Stars Combo set. I just love the versatility of this set! Today I make a welcome baby themed card but you could easily use a different sentiment and palette and create a graduation card, an encouragement card, or even a simple I love you card.

Striped Moon & Stars Shaker Card by Channin

Watch below or on our Youtube channel.

First, I stamped the striped background using the Plaid Play Stamp Set and a variety of Waffle Flower dye inks (Happy Go Lucky, Safe Choice, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, New Fish In Pond, & Daydreaming) on an A2 panel of white cardstock. Next, I die cut the Moon & Stars Panel die from white cardstock, making sure to die cut the strips of stars twice. I then silver heat embossed a sentiment from the Moon & Stars Stamp Set onto the panel and silver heat embossed the large die cut moon as well. Next I die cut two frames out of craft foam using the Rainbow Panel Die and adhered them together.

I then adhered the die cut strips of stars to the Moon & Stars panel and then adhered a panel of acetate to the back. Next, I adhered the foam frame to the striped panel and then filled the panel with my shaker components (Little Things by Lucy’s Cards: Sprinkles - Star Bright, Little Things by Lucy’s Cards: Diamonds - Dewdrop, & silver sequins). I then finished the card by adhering the front panel over the striped panel, then adhered the embossed moon too the acetate, and finally adhered the shaker panel to an A2 top-folding card base.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thanks for stopping by!

[Technique] Faux Bejeweling with Cross Stitch Stamps by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new technique video to share. This week I have a new spin on Waffle Flower’s cross stitch stamp sets. In today’s video I combine Nuvo Jewel Drops with several WF cross stitch stamp sets (Stitched Cacti, Stitched Cup for Tea, Stitched Peonies) to create a fun bejeweled look.

[Technique] Faux Bejeweling with Cross Stitch Stamps by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I stamped a cactus from the Stitched Cacti Stamp Set in distress oxides (cracked pistachio, twisted citron, abandoned coral, wild honey). Then with Nuvo Jewel Drops, I made small drops on each one of the x’s in the image with the corresponding jewel drop color (Key Lime, Strawberry Coulis, Limoncello).

Once the drops were dry I added Black Tie Enamel Accents to the eyes. When the entire image was dry, I fussy cut the cactus out. I then stamped a sentiment from the Hello Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto a yellow A2 top-folding card base (4.25” x 11”, scored and folded at 5.5”). Lastly, I added the cactus with foam tape.

 

For these two cards, I used all the same distress oxide inks as before except I didn’t use Wild Honey and stamped the pots in WF’s Daydreaming Dye Ink instead. I used all the same Nuvo Jewel Drops as previously with the addition of Sea Breeze for the pots. I also used a sentiment from the Hoppy Stamp Set.

 

For this card I used the Stitched Cup of Tea Stamp Set and WF inks Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, You Said What, and Oh Happy Day for the images.

I used Strawberry Coulis, Limoncello and Rosewater Nuvo drops and the sentiment is from the Books & Coffee Stamp Set.

 

For this last card, I used the Stitched Peonies Stamp Set with WF inks Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, and Oh Happy Day and Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio for the leaves and stems. This stamp set has a matching die so I used the die instead of fussy cutting these flowers. 

I also used Strawberry Coulis, Limoncello, Rosewater, and Key Lime Nuvo drops and the Embroidered Greeting for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks for stopping by!

[Fun Friday] Rectangle Frame Card by Therese

Hello! Therese here and today it’s time to make a Rectangle Frame Card!

[Fun Friday] Rectangle Frame Card by Therese

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

To begin I used the A2 Nesting Rectangle 2 Dies to decorate and die cut my frame. Then I added some simple score lines before folding it to fit the front of my card. I added a sweet Copic colored elephant from the Jungle Birthday set and gave him a balloon to hold from Balloon Messages Set.

To finish my scene I added some white marble clouds using the Layering Marble Stamp Set in the background. The sentiment I used came from the Rock On Stamp Set and was stamped with the New Fish In Pond Ink.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great day!

[Technique] DIY Border Stamp with Ombre Inking by Channin

[Technique] DIY Border Stamp with Ombre Inking by Channin

Hello Waffle Flower Friends! It’s Channin here with a new technique video! This week I’m creating my own border stamp with several images from the super sweet Wish Stamp Set. I then combined my DIY border stamp with rock-n-roll inking to create an ombre background. For all the details please check out the video below.

[Technique] DIY Border Stamp with Ombre Inking by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I created a border stamp by arranging several small images from the Wish Stamp Set in a 1” strip on my craft mat and then picked up the images with my acrylic block. Next, I inked up my DIY border stamp in Happy Go Lucky Dye Ink and then partially inked up the top portion in Daydreaming using the rock-n-roll technique and then stamped it onto an A2 panel (4.25” x 5.5”) of 110lb white cardstock. I then repeated this process with several other Waffle Flower Inks (Safe Choice, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, & You Said What), always using just two shades of ink at a time but inking the stamps up with the lighter shade first then rock-n-rolling half of the stamp in the darker shade. I also flipped the stamp each time as well to vary the pattern a bit.

 

After I had stamped the whole background I then stamped, copic colored (colors listed in video) and then die cut with the matching dies the girl and dandelion from the Wish Set. I also stamped some dandelion seeds in You Said What and die cut those out as well. Next, I die cut a circle frame out of the stamped panel with the 2 larger dies from the Nesting Circles 2 Die set. I then taped the frame to the rest of frame and then mounted it and the remaining small circle of the stamped panel into my MISTI and then stamped a sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black. Next, I adhered the panel with the taped frame onto an A2 top-folding card base with foam tape. I then adhered the circle with the sentiment into the opening with liquid glue and then adhered the girl with foam tape and the dandelion and dandelion seeds with liquid glue.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thanks for stopping by!

[Technique] Silhouetted Scene with Rainbow Background by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new technique video! Today I have a fun idea for your stamps that are more solid or less linear. With the current coloring trend in full force these types of stamps often get forgotten, which is a shame because there are so many fun techniques and creative designs you can only do/create with these more solid stamps sets. In today’s video I demonstrate how to create a simple scene in silhouette that just pops with a bright rainbow stamped background.

[Technique] Silhouetted Scene with Rainbow Background by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I created a rainbow background by repeatedly stamping a stripe stamp from the Plaid Play Stamp Set with my MISTI on an A2 white card base in a rainbow of Waffle Flower Inks (You Said What, Chirp Chirp, Daydreaming, New Fish in Pond, Happy Go Lucky, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, & Safe Choice).

Next, I stamped several images from the Morning Stamp Set in VersaFine Onyx Black onto the card front. Once, all the images were stamped, I stamped a sentiment from the Flower Circles Stamp Set. Lastly, I added a few accents and a shadow to the sentiment with a white gel pen.

And that's it! I hope you all enjoyed! Thanks so much for stopping by!

[Technique] Offset Rainbow Sentiment by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video! In today’s video I’m doing a lot of stamping to create this colorful Christmas card! By simply stamping a sentiment slightly offset and repeatedly in a rainbow of colors, I create a dimensional and unique one-layer card.

[Technique] Offset Rainbow Sentiment by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I arranged all the letters in “Christmas”, except for the last “s”, from the Cutaway Alpha Stamp Set on my MISTI. I then stamped the letters in Daydreaming Dye Ink onto an A2 white card base. I then slid the card upward 1/16”, keeping the side of the card against the side of MISTI, and stamped the letters in a new color (Happy Go Lucky Dye Ink). I repeated this process for several more Waffle Flower inks (Tickled Pink, My Pleasure, Oh Happy Day, You Said What, Chirp Chirp, & New Fish in Pond) and then finished with a final layer in VersaFine Onyx Black. I then thoroughly dried my card with my heat gun.


Next I removed only the “s” from my MIST and then flipped my MISTI around and then positioned the “s” at the end of the word. I then repeatedly stamped the “s” in exactly the same manner as I stamped the rest of the letters. I then heat set my card, repositioned it in the MISTI, and then stamped the “s” in Versamark and heat embossed with glitter embossing powder. I then embossed the rest of the letters in Christmas, by first repositioning the “s” using the card as a guide. Lastly, I stamped and heat embossed “Merry” and some flourishes from the Peace on Earth Stamp Set with VersaFine Onyx Black and Versamark and the same glitter embossing powder.

I hope you enjoyed! Thank so much for stopping by!

[Technique] Adding Depth to Alphabet Dies by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a fun Halloween card. I can’t believe it’s mid October and I haven’t made a Halloween card yet! It's time to rectify that I think! In this week’s video I demonstrate a simple way to added depth to your die cut sentiments to help them pop or stand out from busy backgrounds.

[Technique] Adding Depth to Alphabet Dies by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I created two masks with the pumpkins from the Trick or Treat Stamp Set out of copy paper and then two ghost masks from a full-adhesive post-it note. I then stamped a layered pumpkin background with a couple ghosts using the masks I created in Fired Brick Distress Oxide and Versafine Onyx Black on a panel cut with the Stitched Layers Die. I then watercolored the pumpkins with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, WF Oh Happy Day Dye Ink, and a little Fired Brick Distress Oxide for the stems.

Next, I cut “Boo to you” from black and white cardstock with the Papercut Alpha Die set and then layered the black letters over the white but slightly off-set to create a shadowed look. I then adhered a panel of craft foam behind the watercolored panel and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding black card base. And lastly, I adhered the letters onto the card front.

I hope you enjoyed! Thanks so much for stopping by!

[Technique] Stamping Chevrons by Channin

[Technique] Stamping Chevrons by Channin

Hello everyone, it’s Channin here with a new technique video! This week I’m making chevrons with the new Plaid Play Stamp Set. In the video I demonstrate my method for stamping chevrons and I also show you how to create 3 different chevron designs with simple modifications to the same technique!

[Technique] Stamping Chevrons by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First I cut an A2 panel in half vertically to create (2) 5.5” by 2.125” panels. I then positioned the largest solid stripe stamp from the Plaid Play Stamp Set in my MISTI at an angle with the help of the smaller triangle from the Creative Corners set. I then stamped a series of stripes in My Pleasure, Happy Go Lucky, Oh Happy Day, New Fish in Pond, and Peace of Mind till the half was completely covered. I then stamped the other half of the panel in the same process except with the strip flipped.

I then glued the halves onto an A2 panel, trimmed it down and adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. Next, I diecut a circle out of vellum using the Flower Circles Die set. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment and hearts from the Big Day Stamp Set. Lastly I added small strips of foam tape to the backside of the vellum, behind the sentiment and hearts and then adhered it to the center of the card.

For this card I followed the same steps as before to create the chevron stripes except this time I used a smaller solid stripe stamp from the Plaid Play Stamp Set and I some used different Waffle Flower Inks (Daydreaming, New Fish in Pond, Chirp Chirp, You Said What, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, Safe Choice, & Happy Go Lucky). I then cut the halves in half again vertically and then adhered them to an A2 panel.

I then trimmed the panel and adhered it to an A2 top-folding card base. I then diecut “good luck” out of white cardstock and craft foam using the Good Luck Word Die. I then trimmed off the luck portion with scissors and adhered the cardstock “good” and the craft foam “good” together. Next, I stamped and white heat embossed the rest of the sentiment using the Happy Day Stamp Set onto a strip of black cardstock. Lastly, I adhered all the portions of the sentiment onto the card front.

I also followed the same steps as before to create the chevron stripes as in card 1 except this time I didn’t cover the entire half. I also used a smaller stripe stamp and Peace of Mind, New Fish in Pond, You Said What, and Oh Happy Day inks.

I then adhered the halves to an A2 panel, trimmed the panel, and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-fold card base. Lastly I created a sentiment in the same manner as I did for card 2 and I adhered it to the card front.

I hope you enjoyed. Thanks so much for stopping by!
